. south carolina's jim clyburn. colin powell had tough talk for the gop. he claims he's still a republican, but that the outlook for his party is grim without serious change. and if president clinton makes a surprise appearance at the golden globes, the big winner in hollywood last night was politics. we'll tell you why. good morning from washington. it's monday, january 14th, 2013. this is "the daily rundown." to my first reads of the morning. today marks the one-month anniversary of the newtown shooting. a month ago, there was a sense that this tragedy was different. that the shock and grief after 20 6 and 7-year-old children were gunned down in an elementary school would launch a national conversation on guns and somehow change the political landscape of the gun issue. well, for the first time since al gore lost the election, there has been a sustained conversation about what the government can or should do about gun violence. as vice president biden prepares to unveil proposals, some details are emerging. universal background checks on gun buyers ramped up prosecutions for gun purchase

for the republican party. general colin powell told the vivid, nasty truth. he blasted his party, especially its leaders, for engaging in flagrant race-baiting. many of his points have been made on "hardball." the racist language about the president of the united states shucking and jiving, about him being lazy, the unending background assault of the birthers saying the president is not legitimate, not even an authentic american. again, the general did what i and others have been pounding for months, this multistate republican plan to shrink black electoral strength by slamming down on the chance to vote. what colin powell said yesterday is going right to the heart of the republican intolerance made more powerful by the fact that the indictment has now been made by this country's most celebrated african-american republican. eugene robinson is a pulitzer prize winning columnist for "the washington post" and an msnbc contributor. alex wagner is the host of "now," the celebrated program with her noontime greatness coming at us every day of the week. let's listen to general powell -- i always have t
: you have talked about on your program general powell in one colin powell said on "meet the press." does that represent for you the sense that the party is looking inward at all, these issues like gun control, like fiscal issues and like outreach to minorities that it had not done before but is doing it because people like colin powell are stepping forward to say if we don't have a tolerant party we won't l not have a future? >> well, charlie i'm pleased secretary powell still considers himself as a republican. as a republican i wasn't necessarily thrilled that he supported a democratic president but i understand colin powell believes like a lot of my moderate republican friends that this party left them a long time ago. it's very simple. when colin powell is on your side off much better chance of being elected president. when people like colin powell are supporting you, be it a republican candidate or a democratic candidate, that's a positive. we republicans over the past two three, four years have pushed moderates like colin powell to the side in favor of people like todd akin,
the responsibility and i will take it. . >> in the way mcconnell proposed. >> professor shrum, colin powell called out the gop's tactics on sunday. i'd like you to take a listen to colin powell. >> but in recent years there's been a significant shift to the right, and we have seen what that shift has produced, two losing presidential campaigns. >> professor shrum, this is your business. this is your profession. why is it so difficult for the gop to understand that their tactics consistently alienate voters? >> well, look, you have a republican party that's in a very peculiar position. they have gerrymandered the house so that they have a whole lot of people whose only worry is that they're going to get a primary from the right. and, therefore, they've become the party of the alienated, the prejudiced, the delusional, and when you talk about issues like immigration, you talk about issues like civil rights, you talk about issues like gay rights, they alienate all of those constituencies, they alienate young people. they may be able to hold onto the house at least until reapportionment in 2020, but t
what he said out to do it in his second term? general colin powell has endorsed barack obama in both elections. he was asked if the president has met his expectations during the first term. >> he has seen the economy come up again, and the employment -- unemployment rate is still too high but i think this will improve. we're out of iraq and we are changing our policy in afghanistan, and osama bin laden is dead. the president has made a commitment to education and he is running with a 52% approval rate, and this is a good start for a second term. >> what about the critics of the president to say that the deficit has grown and he has not put his weight behind climate change. in his first address, he mentioned climate change three times. and there are still problems in the country and the criticism -- is that he has given a fabulous speech but has not followed through. >> i think some of the criticism is fair but you have to also talk about his initial priorities or challenges. he is really committed to doing something about this in the second term. the deficit is one of the most diffic
have reacted strongly to the words of former secretary of state colin powell, but i think he is doing them a favor by speaking out. >> there's also a dark -- a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party. what do i mean by that? what i mean by that is that they still sort of look down on minorities. how can i evidence that? when i see a former governor say that the president is shucking and jiving. that's a racial era slave term. when i see another former governor after the president's first debate where he didn't do well, he said the president was lazy. he didn't say he was slow, he was tired, he didn't do well. he said he was lazy. it may not mean anything to most americans, but to those of us who are african-americans, the second word is shiftless and there's a third word that goes along with it. why do they tolerate this kind of discussion within the party? >> former chief of staff at the state department during colin powell's term and currently a visiting professor of government of public policy at the college of william & mary. good to have you with us tonight. you told

. >> more broadly among house republicans, you wrote in their response to colin powell, you in 1996 did not think he was the right choice to be the nominee, but you said the republican party of 2013 bears little resemblance to the party of ronald reagan that would have responded to powell's concerns with an all hands on deck effort to win the war back. it's big enough to win back the white house in 2016. and that's, to the point, we have a more and more bifurcated congress, not the congress you served in. there were 49 votes, only 49 votes for sandy relief last night. that says a lot. there were more than 49 votes for gulf damage and repair after katrina. >> colin powell is a moderate, but i'll tell you what, i understand why ronald reagan reached out to colin powell and saw him as a future leader of the republican party when he let him run the joint chiefs. we need moderate republicans like colin powell on our side. we've run him off. we've run a lot of other moderate republican voters off, and if you want to win 49 states again like ronald reagan won in 1984, if we want to win the lan
